1. Each project targets a specific part of a medical device and is done by only one student

2. Selection of students for the different projects will be done by the individual cumulative grade of the student.

3. Hardware will be provided to students in all projects (FPGA development platform in Area I and high-performance graphics cards for Area II).

4. Integration of all projects into one (4D ultrasound imaging system) will be done if time permits.

5. Application to join should be sent to my email during the first week of school. Please choose only one area and your list of projects within that area in the order of your preference.
